I have no idea what rents are like in Los Angeles but I do have several friends in New York City. The housing prices are horrendously high. Manhattan is through the roof and now the bridge and tunnel boroughs are following suit.
Call me a snob but I believe anyone who is exposed to millions of viewers across the country, or across several countries, every day, as the case may be, deserves an "adjusted" living wage. When you think that some young soap actors only make about $100,000 a year, or less - that's peanuts in NYC unless you have a rent-controlled apartment.
So what is a living wage in Manhattan?
I think of someone like Nathaniel Marston who maybe makes at most $300,000 a year.
Yes, celebs should know what they are taking on as public figures, and yes his behavior was out of control and allegedly criminal. But for that salary in Manhattan is it worth it to have your emergency room photos published?
